One problem with it is that it's tricky to work on two modules at
once, unless you have buildout... And since I in my branch removed the
buildouts usage of itself, I don't. So that means that zc.buildout
doens't have zc.recipe.egg, unless I install it, which I can't,
becuase I haven't ported it yet, which I can't do untill I posrt zc.
buildout which... yeah, you get it.

Outrageous? No. Bad? Yes.
